How Emergency Rooms Can Detect and Treat a Heart Attack

We live in one of the most medically advanced societies in the world. Our emergency rooms are equipped with diagnostic tools and life-saving therapies that can deal with every conceivable medical emergency. When someone comes to the hospital with symptoms suggesting a heart attack, emergency room personnel have a responsibility to perform tests and treatments such as:

  • Acute cardiac ischemia time-insensitive predictive instrument software
  • Cardiac sestamibi scan
  • Thrombolytic therapy

These technologies are readily available and should be utilized as necessary. When they are not used, the staff may be responsible for medical malpractice, in which case they should be held accountable for their negligence.
